This stunning little cruiser/racer is not only immaculate, but also has an impressive racing history!
International Folkboats built by Marieholms Bruk in Sweden are constructed in fibreglass with a carvel hull. The design, by Tord Sunden, is based on the Nordic Folkboat which he also designed.
Built in 1983, 'Tifano' has benefitted from a full bottom-up refurbishment in 2018, carried out by a professional boatyard, so that she can now be described as being in 'as new' condition. The inboard Volvo engine was rebuilt about 7 years ago.
'Tifano' has an IRC certificate, and is ready to go racing, but equally, she is a comfortable and safe boat for cruising. She has been the winner of many regattas in the South of France, and in 2018 won Burnham Week's prestigious Commodore's Cup!
The self-draining cockpit which has high coamings helps to keep the cockpit dry. Down below there is sleeping for four adults, provided by 2 bunks in the main cabin and a vee-berth forwards.
'Tifano' comes with the following extensive inventory:
2 mainsails, one in good condition, one new for 2019 but unused (a converted Dragon sail), plus mainsail cover
Genoa and spinnaker, both in good condition (spinnaker has a small patch but has a very good shape)
Furling gear for genoa
Full spinnaker gear and boom
The boat was recently fitted with new Lewmar 40 genoa winches
2 basic halyard winches and clutches
Lightweight fortress anchor with chain and rope
Laminated wooden tiller, with cover. Tiller extension on board but never used
Lifelines for offshore use
Full sliding galley unit with unused portable Marksman gas stove
Table stowed under pilot berth deckhead, which fits in cabin and cockpit
Bimini, and bathing ladder with deck fixing points
The cabin has new upholstery throughout (2019)
Working sea toilet
Autohelm which has hardly been used.
Ship's brass clock (quartz) and barometer mounted on cabin bulkhead
2 half-models mounted on bulkhead
Echo sounder on cockpit bulkhead (new 2018)
Compass mounted on cockpit bulkhead
Fenders and warps
Sevylor 2-man inflatable dinghy, complete with electric and manual pumps
Stainless steel pulpit and pushpit with ensign holder
Windex at masthead, and can have navigation lights added if required. Currently use portable lights
7hp Volvo inboard diesel engine, rebuilt about 7 years ago, with new (2018) Morse control
Folding radar reflector and mooring ball
Flexible, portable solar panel, works well, but looks scruffy
Electrical control panel
Long shore-power line, linking to two internal domestic sockets
Spare wire halyard up the mast
2-bladed prop with vertical marks on prop-shaft and inspection hatch.
This is a very pretty boat which also happens to be a brilliant sea boat!
